ABC Radio National’s 15-min interview with Sen Stephen Conroy from this morning. http://bit.ly/bhdPiu No transcript yet.

@joshgnosis Have I complained yet about you creating the mental image of Conroy getting “beefed up”? http://bit.ly/a0BEXF

@beeso Given that NBN is “nation’s largest-ever infrastructure project” you’d think journalists would make an effort to learn.

via TweetDeck in reply to beeso

RT @beeso: I was hoping under this new “paradigm” all analysts would be burnt at the stake like witches. [Also fixes Channel Nine ratings.]

via TweetDeck

@beeso I didn’t hear today’s RN interview but, yes, if customers can get fibre at prices comparable to fixed wireless, who’d use wireless?

via TweetDeck in reply to beeso

The TVC for Philips’ SensoTouch 3D is bullshit. That is all.

As I have my last drink, I’m the only one left apart from the two old Japanese blokes who run the place, and the young barmaid.

@ben_hr “Craving’ is an overstatement, but I do like Isan food. Fairfield? You’re on.

via TweetDeck in reply to ben_hr

If I had my passport with me I’d just go the the airport and head to Bangkok. I know.a place…

via TweetDeck

@ElegSufficiency Yes, agreed, House on the corner of Elizabeth and Campbell is a decent Isan eatery. Restaurant rather than diner tho.

via TweetDeck in reply to StephanieAWood1

I think @ApostrophePong is still on the shoot, so I should probably go feed the cats after a quick feed.

via TweetDeck

Chinatown? Nah. Maybe Thaitown? I need to find an Isan diner, if there is one now.

@DarkTalent @deptofinternets I’m already in a Fighting Fantasy gamebook. True story. I emerge from a swamp, I’m told.

Is The Australian really so insecure that they need to launch a personal attack on Laura Tingle? If so, hilarious.

via TweetDeck

@RohanAlexander The food here at the Nippon Club is good, yes, but not for eating by myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to RohanAlexander

RT @deptofinternets @stilgherrian Are you a human Choose Your Own Adventure book? [Yes.]

via TweetDeck

So, I’m in the Sydney CBD and considering dinner. What is my next move?

Oh hang on, Rudd hasn’t been sworn in as Foreign Minister yet, has he? Ignore my confusion re PM’s office announcement.

via TweetDeck

@JohnBirmingham Hah! Now that’s called cutting it fine!

via TweetDeck in reply to JohnBirmingham

I find it odd that announcements of the Foreign Minister’s movements come from the PM’s office, not his.

via TweetDeck

I mis-spelled “Pax Britannia”. There goes my knighthood.

Media Rangalert! Ruddbot to visit Washington 17 to 25 September, most of it at the United Nations.

@nanopunk That’s not a penis, it’s the prow of a boat. A Japanese boat. http://bit.ly/aaSsmk

Still trying to understand the concept of cricket with cheerleaders. Cheerleaders in Brief Brief Shorts in front of Big Video Screens.

via TweetDeck

@JohnBirmingham A pleasure to catch up, as always, Sir. Have a safe and not-too-tedious flight. More ales next time.

via TweetDeck in reply to JohnBirmingham

@peterjblack It’s not just cricket, it’s cricket with cheerleader. It’s baffling.

Sapporo Cricket Pax Brittania Guyana WTF? http://post.ly/xEAQ

On One HD they’re showing cricket, Guyana vs Bangalore in Twenty20 I think, and they have a dancing girl cheerleader to celebrate runs.

@Nickhodge @phildobbie Ho Ho Ho. What can I say? It’s the Nippon Club.

via TweetDeck in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@fridley Apart from Mr Birmingham I’m the youngest person here.

via TweetDeck in reply to fridley

Yes, Nippon Club.

via TweetDeck

We’re in a cab and the driver has no clear destination. What could possibly go wrong?

via TweetDeck

@nanopunk Mr Birmingham is on the phone right now, but yes he is heading back to Brisbane tonight. He’s with me, so I’m sure that’ll work

John Birmingham starts talking at Hurstville City Library http://post.ly/xD5C

Hurstville needs to be less afraid of trees.

via TweetDeck

Words that should never be seen together: “discount colonoscopy clinic”.

via TweetDeck

Seriously, young man, having your hoodie drawn so closely over your face on a sunny spring afternoon? Why not just hold a sign, “Criminal”?

via TweetDeck

Dear Real Estate Industry, how is an apartment in the swamp next to Wolli Creek station “dress circle living”, exactly?

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; Redfern station; Hurstville station; 1400 Hurstville City Library. There shall be grazing en route.

@simonhackett @rvowles Your internets are sitting on their side. Has the world gone mad?

Humour is such a personal thing, I guess.

via TweetDeck

I will total up the responses shortly, but already it’s clear that the world is somewhat divided regarding Ms Lucy’s humour.

via TweetDeck

According to ABC TV publicity, Judith Lucy is “Australia’s favourite funny lady”. http://bit.ly/9fZ9Pk Discuss.

via TweetDeck

@bernietb I don’t think you “pen” deals, do you? Maybe it’s “penning” a novel or a song. All very quaint, however.

via TweetDeck in reply to bernietb

I assume it’s only journalists who “ink” contracts rather than “sign” them. Another cliché which should die.

via TweetDeck

Fran Kelly seemed to have trouble with the concept of NBN Co doing multiple things at once.

@danwarne The non sequitur is the cost-benefit analysis vs now rolling out, but the over-budget question is answered by current experience.

via TweetDeck in reply to danwarne

@nickgilbert Conroy’s interview is only important in the sense that he’s answering the same daft questions in the same way. Nothing new.

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

@joshgnosis @Davidramli I suspect Sen Conroy would do rage particularly well. Listening to this RN interview, I can hear his frustration.

via TweetDeck

@mogams Well, I didn’t actually have any Thai food yesterday. I guess it’s either the Moon or the potato then.

via TweetDeck in reply to mogams

Hmmm… Thanks to insomnia, again, I won’t be able to get all my writing done this morning. That’s mildly annoying.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I would never use a euphemism for anything. It hurts when I walk.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

People shouldn’t be allowed to use the word “therein” unless they know that there’s no hyphen therein. I’m looking at you, ABC Online.

via TweetDeck

Happy Tuesday to @maninultimo and @JohnBirmingham. You two should talk because… well… I’ll let Mr Birmingham explain privately.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Il est facile de mal lu ce que vous dites. Je suis en train de penser d’une protubérance. Il apporte de la joie.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Tue plan: A morning of writing; a lunchtime briefing at Cockle Bay Wharf; a client phone conference at 1500; remainder TBA.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai décidé de remplacer le sommeil avec des concombres de mer. Ils sont beaucoup plus faciles à entretenir. Bon!

Fine advice on becoming a crackpot, which is better than an “expert”, from @johnemcintyre. http://bit.ly/997iey

I am turning off the internet because it is wrong.

@deptofinternets Sorry, what was that about Matt Preston and 12 year olds? [confused]

via TweetDeck

@deptofinternets Shoosh, don’t interrupt me until the program is finished.

via TweetDeck

Oh. You’re watching television. I’ll come back when you’ve started thinking for yourself again.

via TweetDeck

I am tired and did not phrase that well, but compared with apologists for racism, well, I am happy to make my kind of mistake.

via TweetDeck

Just to make it clear, I think counting the ethnicity or race of a group and deciding that some number is good or bad is fucking disgusting.

I appreciate your compliments, even if I have been remiss at replying today because I have been out and about. Nice ears.

via TweetDeck

RI still inadequate. This is most unacceptable.

via TweetDeck

If you’re so fucking cosmopolitan, as your designer shoes imply, why are you scoffing a Hungry Jacks burger on a Central Station platform?

via TweetDeck

Inadequate RI.

At Town Hall station a busker plays “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” on flute, but for some reason nobody is stabbing him.
